As you study the compass, you think you could probably TURN, PUSH, TAP and NIBBLE it.

TURN: You turn your compass, trying to get the needle to stop moving. It doesn't.

Others see: Dominga turns her compass this way and that, but doesn't seem to be having any luck.

PUSH: You point your compass until the needle lines up with north. Now you know which way north is!

Others see: Dominga points her compass until its needle lines up with north.  She appears pleased with herself! 

TAP: You tap your compass, causing the needle to spin wildly. How will you find your way now?

Others see: Dominga taps her compass, causing the needle to spin wildly.  Hopefully, no one left her in charge of directions. 

NIBBLE: In a moment of true exasperation, you try biting the compass when nothing else works. That doesn't work either, except now your teeth hurt.

Others see: Dominga bites down on her compass, looking exasperated.  She then winces in pain, looking like she didn't accomplish much.
